The Val-d'Or East Project
The Val-d'Or East project consists of the 100%-owned Pascalis-Colombiere, Senore and Beaufor North properties. With the Beaufor West and Pascalis Extension properties, Adventure Gold owns a total of 107 mining claims covering a surface area of 3,708 hectares in the area. From 1989 to 1993, the Pascalis-Colombiere property was the site of gold production at the L.C. Beliveau Mine, where Cambior Inc. (now IAMGOLD) mined the New Beliveau gold deposit. A total of 1.8 Mt of ore was extracted at a grade of 3.17 g/t Au, from the surface to 300 metres depth (total of 167,000 ounces of gold from the main diorite dyke, official production from Cambior postmortem report, Nov. 1996).
The Corporation is a mineral exploration company focused on discovering and developing high-quality gold deposits in the Abitibi region located in eastern Canada - one of the richest gold mines areas in the world. The Corporation has become, in a few years, an important player in the mining exploration industry with one of the best portfolio of exploration properties along the main gold-bearing structures of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt. The Company is exploring mainly close to gold mines where the mining production infrastructures are already existent, which distinguishes it from several other exploration companies. The Corporation's exploration team are mining professionals having worked previously for well-established producing companies and understand the industry challenges. The Corporation owns 100% of the rights on its three main projects namely: Val-d'Or East, Detour Quebec and Casa-Cameron. The Val-d'Or East flagship project encompasses the Pascalis-Colombiere property where Cambior Inc. (now IAMGOLD) was producing gold between 1989 and 1993 at the Beliveau Mine. Close to the former mine, the Corporation recently discovered a significant new gold system and works actively in its development. As disclosed in its latest financial statements, the Corporation is well financed to apply its business plan.
